Claudie Linke
The Wild West I The End Of An Era


Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
The brief from Lala Berlin was to explore "pride", as one of the 7 deadly sins. Other then that I was given complete creative freedom. I decided to explore the state of current western society from the angle of pride and narcissim: The wild west - the end of an era. The beginning of something new. The desert is a metaphor for change, the mountains stand for our challenges and opportunities.

The drawing was intended be used as Print and T-Shirt Design.
